Clevelanders celebrate LeBron James' return

Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND (AP) - LeBron James' fans and former haters in Ohio have every reason to rejoice now that the four-time NBA MVP has decided to bring his considerable talents back to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Anticipation had been high Friday as the prized free agent pondered whether to leave the Miami Heat, where he won two league titles, to return to Cleveland, where he started his pro career with the Cavaliers.

James told Sports Illustrated on Friday that he has decided to go home.

Fans can now forget the "The Decision" James made on television in 2010, when he announced he was leaving Cleveland for Miami.

James' return is latest boost for the city of Cleveland. The Republican National Committee this week recommended the city as the site of its 2016 national convention.

Clevelanders see a James homecoming as another harbinger that the oft-maligned and hard-working city is finally getting what it deserves.
